In this wide-ranging exposition, Derek and Diane Tidball attempt to defuse the ongoing polemics surrounding gender in Christian witness with a refreshing firsthand look at the place of women in the Bible.

The authors begin with foundations about women in creation and in the new creation and then examine women under the old covenant, women with Jesus and in the kingdom of God, and women in the community of the early church.

". . . a valuable resource for preachers or Bible-study leaders who have not had the opportunity to study the texts in depth, or to reflect on the importance of women within the entire spread of scripture."

Catriona Gorton, Baptist Quarterly, July 2013
